OHIO, A CORPORATION OF OHIO, (INCORPORATED IN- 1906.)
CASH-REGISTER AND COIN-HANDLING DEVICE.
- Patented ,Nov. 27,1906.
Application filed May 18, 1905. Serial No. 260,949-
To all whom, it may concern;
Be it'known that 1,,WILLIAM H. MUZZY, a citizen of the United States, residing at Day ton, in the county of Montgomery and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and use ful Improvements in Cash-Register and Coin Handling Devices, of which I -declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact descrip tion.
This invention relates to improvements in cash-registers, and has more particular rela tion to money-handling attachments for the same.
One of the several objects of the resent invention is to provide a register with improve money receiving and handling devices whereby coins may be accurately and quickly handled andchange rapidly made.
I have shown my present improvement as applied to the type of cash-register patented to Thomas Carney, No. 497,860, dated May 23, 1893; but it will be understood that the invention may with equal facility be applied to other types of machines.
With the above and other incidental ob jects in view the invention consists in certain novel features of construction and combinations of parts the essential elements of which are set forth in appended claims and a preferred form of embodiment of which is hereinafter specifically described with'referenceto the drawings'which accompany and form part of this specification.
Of said drawings, Figure 1 represents a transverse section of the type of machine above mentioned with my improvements applied thereto. Fig. 2 represents a detail side elevation of a pair of the change-making keys. Fig. 3 represents a top plan view of a cash-drawer, showing my improvements applied thereto. Fig. 4 re resents a transverse section through the eas drawer and its cooperating parts, taken on line 4 4 of Fig. 3. Fig. 5 represents a vertical section through the counting mechanism of the type of machine mentioned, and Fig. 6 represents a side elevation of the printing mechanism of said machine.
The class of machine shown in the present drawings and to which my improvements are applied maybe described ingeneral terms as comprising a series of amount-key levers 5,
which are journale'd upon a horizontal shaft 7, supported by the side frames 8. The keys operate pivoted frames which carry segmental racks for operating the counting and printing mechanisms of then machine. Above the keys and adapted to be operated by any one of themis a universal bar or key-coupler 9, pivotallysupp-orted at 10 by the side frames.
This coupler carries a pin 11, which plays in I with the said pinion 14, and thereby continue its rotary movement. The teeth on either side of this rack are held into 'enga ement with the pinion 14 by means of a ug 15, formed on'the upper end of the rack and which engages a stationary flange 16, extending from one of the side frames 8. This rack is shifted at the end of itsupward movement, so that the lug 15 will pass over the to of flange 16, by aspring 17, one end'of whic is fast to the lower part of said rack and the other to a stud 18, projecting from the side frame.
Fast upon the rotary shaft 14 is a cam 19, which engages a forwardly-extending arm 20 of the back rod 21. This back rod acts as a supporting meansfor lugs 22, formed upon standards 23, the upper ends of'whioh carry indicators'24. The arm 20 is held into engagement with the ca1n19 by a spring 25,
which abuts against a downwardly-extending arm 26 of the back rod 21.
For any more detail description of said parts reference. may be had to the above' Lil front of the drawer.
pivoted fingers 'or ejectors 32, which are adapted to engage the upper edge of a coin and eject the same from the tubes 28. These fingers are normally held in engagement with the keys by coil-springs 33, which extend under said fingers, surround a shaft 2-34, and are made fast to the latter; The keys 30 are limited in their upward movements at their forward ends by contacting with the upper ends of slots 35, formed in the front plate of the cash-drawer 27. bank of keys 30, as shown in Fig. 3,v are provided with antifriction-rollers 33, which en- 'gage'with the flanges 32 of the fingers 32, and thereby eject several coins. enable the operator to make change more rapidly whieremore than one-coinisdeSiredi Byreferen'ceto Fig. 1- it will be seen that the forward coin is forced against a flange 28*",
located at the forward end of the tube, and that when the coin is depressed free of this flange it will fall into a chute 34 The coins are prevented from rolling out of the chute 34 when ejected from their tubes by a pivoted door 35, which is fast to a rock-shaft 36, extending the entire width of the drawer. and has fast to its left-hand end an arm 37, the upper end of which is equipped with a pin 38, that plays in a recess 39, formed in the lower end of an arm 40. This arm is fast at its upperend to a rock-shaft 41, which carries a swinging door 42, similar to the door '35 and preventing coins in a chute 51 from falling into the cash-drawer. F ast to the arm 37 and extending rearwardly is an L-shaped slide 43, which is supported upon the side of the drawer by a pin 44, which plays in an elongated slot 45, formed in said slide. The upwardly-extendin arm 46 of theslide 43 engages a donmwardl extending arm 47, which. is fast to the key-coupler 9. As the key-coupler oscillates upon the operation of a key the arm 47 is rocked out of the path of the arm 46, and a spring 48, which connectsthe slide and drawer, draws the slide rearward, therebyrocking' the door 42 inward and the door 35 outward, so that the amount of money which has been tendered to the clerk and which is placed in achute 51 in front of the door 42 is deposited in the compartment 53 of the drawer, and the coin or coins which represent the change which is to be returned to the customer drop through chute 54 into the hand of the operator.
When it is desired to open the cash-drawer for any purpose, it is necessary to operate the special drawer-release key 6, which is similar to the amount-keys 5., The rearward end. of
said special key as it completes its upward movement contacts with a cam edge-55 of a bell-crank latching-lever 56 and rocks the same about the shaft 57, and thereby releases The rear ends of said keys pro ect under flanges 32, formed upon.
The ends of the lower- This is to the drawer 27, which is ejected by its spring 59. The latching-lever 56 is held in its normal locking position, as shown, in Fig. 1, by a coil-spring 58: I
it will be seen from the above that the operation of any of the amount keys 5 will have no effect upon the drawer-i'eleasing mechanism and that the drawer is only opened by the operation of a special key. it will be seen' that when it is desired to make change'from a silver dollar or any amount under a dollar it is not necessary to open the caslrdrawer at all, and most of the sales will;
be of this character.- Say, for instance, that a sale of twenty-five cents ismade-and 'asilver dollar-tendered in payment. The clerk approaching the machine places the silver dollar in the 'chute'51. At the same time he repeats to himself the amount of the. sale, twenty-five cents, and then presses the sev- 'enty-five-cent key and repeats to himself one dollar}? just as he would if he had gone-"to a cash-drawer and hadsaid twenty-five cents, fifty cents, "one'dollar as he picked up a quarter and'afift'y-cent piece. The pressure of the seventy-fivecent key, as beforeexplained, will eject a fifty-cent piece and a twenty-five-cent piece into the chute 34, and
the same will drop down until arrested by the He then depresses pivoted gate or door 35. the twenty-five-cent key of the cash-register. This operation registers the twenty-five cents, prints the same, and elevates the twenty-five-cent indicator and at the same time operates the gates or doors 42 and 35". When the gate 42 opens, the silver dollar drops into the compartment 53, and when the gate 35 opens the fifty-cent piece and twentylive-cent piecepass forward through the chute 54 into the hand of the operator, or, if desired,
the chute 54 may be cup-shaped, so as to retain the coins.
then the ressure on the cash-register key is This operation has not-re-" quired the opening of the cash-drawerat allx relaxed, a l the parts return to their normal positions, and the gates 42 and 35 are again closed.
When a paper bill enters into any part of the transaction, a special key 6 is depressed,
together with the other keys, which'opera tion permits the cash-drawer to open, so that access may be had to thebill-compartments 27 therein.
The supply of coins in the several tubes is sufficient to last for the greater portion of a day; but should the operator observe during his leisure that the tubes were becoming emptied he will replenish them from the coins inthe compartments 53. hours, however, no coins are placed in the tubes, for all amounts received in silver are simply dropped in the chute 51 and require no further thought from the operator. The
casting from which the tubes 28 are cut'is During the busy preferably bodily removable from the. machine, so that, if desired, the same may be placed in a safe overnight. I have illustrated only three special keys for ejecting combinations of'coins but it will be understood that any desired number of special keys may be employed for ejecting two, three, four, or five coins at one operation. The sidewalls of the chute 34 are so inclined as to guide all oi the coins into the chute 34:, beneath which the hand of the operator is placed to receive the coins.
IVhile the form of mechanism here shown and described is admirablyadapted to ful'il the objects primarily stated, it is to be un derstood that it is not desired to confine the invention 'to the one form of embodiment here disclosed, for it is susceptible of embodiment in various forms, all coming within the scope of the claims which follow.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Let- 'ters Patent, is
